How to Make

Step One: Heat the oven to 350°F. Prepare the muffin pan with liners, or grease the pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Step Two: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.

Step Three: In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.

Step Four: Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each one.

Step Five: Mix in the pumpkin purée and vanilla extract.

Step Six: Stir in the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Step Seven: Place batter into the prepared muffin cups so they are 3/4 of the way full.

Step Eight: Place the muffin tin in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, until a tester comes out with few crumbs.

Step Nine: Let the muffins cool enough to handle, then transfer them to a wire rack.

Step Ten: Make two shallow cuts into the top each muffin and insert printable ears. Serve warm.
